Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 28th February 2010

Work, work, and more work this week :)

Lucky that I enjoy what I do!

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to a great post called Tips for a Productive Day from the MeDirected blog. This post aims to show you how to make the most out of the 86,400 seconds that we all have every day.
  • My second link is a link to a great post from Lifehacker titled Get More Done by Organizing Just Enough. Interesting post from Lifehacker and it does as some good questions.
  • My third link is to the a post outlining Dealing with Calls and Agendas with OmniFocus. I like posts such as these as I feel we all use apps such as OmniFocus in our own way and seeing how other people use them can inspire you to add new branches to your daily workflow.
  • My fourth link is a link to a nice little recap from GTD Times of what GTD actually is. That is a great elevator pitch for GTD and one similar to what I explain to people when they ask what I do.
  • My fifth and last link is a link to a great post from ZenHabits titled How I Was Able to Ace Exams Without Studying. I love taking exams and I run a whole site dedicated to Mind Mapping for Exams so this post was of interest for me.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 21st February 2010

I had another great week.

I spent the start of the week away with my family in the Yorkshire Dales and the back end of the week working from home on some cool projects.

It has been a productive, yet very busy week and I am looking forward to the day when my workload will not be as much so I can focus on some of my every growing list of someday/maybe actions!

Here are my collection of links for this week.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 14th February 2010

I spent last week in Washington DC at a security conference called Shmoocon.

We arrived just before one of the worst snowstorms that DC had ever seen. All made for a rather fun weekend and made the journey back home to the UK challenging.

Happy Valentines day to all. I am spending the next few days with my family in the Yorkshire Dales.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to a great post from the Aiming Low blog that covers Procrastination. We all procrastinate for one reason or another and I do feel that procrastination is the biggest hinder to productivity and success. This is a good and direct article that looks at Procrastination as the goal, and helps you to do the opposite.
  • My second link is a link to How to Reclaim the Morning from Web Worker Daily. This is a thought provoking article about getting your mornings in shape in order to be more productive. I am a morning person and mornings are my best part of the day.
  • My third link is to the a post about Processing Information from the Entrepreneurial Advocate. The post mentions GTD and also AwayFind as two ways of helping small businesses process information.
  • My fourth link is a link to a quick little Evernote tip on how to save How To’s in Evernote. I have just started to use Evernote to plan some study that I am doing for an upcoming exam and I found this post useful.
  • My fifth and last link is a link to a 5 little tips to Get Things Done in 55 Seconds from the Toilet Paper Entrepreneur. Nice little post with some good little tips.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!
